Testimonials for Halco

Hope the summer is treating you well. I wanted you to know that last night at dinner my wife, said “I have to admit you were right about the insulation.  It’s really made the house much more comfortable.”  As you might imagine, I was incredibly pleased.  The insulation has made a huge difference this summer.  Temperature swings in the house are very minor unless we open the windows.  Looking forward to the winter benefits.   All best, Scott

The two young men who weatherized our home today were absolutely outstanding.  They were very thorough, they explained their work very clearly and certainly exceeded our expectations of the overall improvements they did. Our home is noticeably tighter. I can feel the difference and I know I will see the difference on our utility bill. Thank you for being the EmPower NY contractor. If you ever need a reference please don't hesitate to call on us.  We feel blessed that you did all of the inspection, paper work and the final execution of the program. Best regards,

I am reaching out to you regarding an employee that I feel needs to be recognized (for not only his impressive knowledge, exceptional inspection skills, and his ability to multi-task while listening to 2 children run wild and 2 adults asking him several HUNDRED questions), but also his ability to maintain such a personal conversation while still being professional enough to represent Halco Energy.  Too often, as people with "professional careers", we forget that not everyone comes from our backgrounds in business/ education, etc. We forget that certain terms, gestures, and sources of communication can be so easily misconstrude, and our lack of "personalism", is often a reflection of "ego". A reflection that is commonly deposited on the employer the person is representing.    In this case however, I have been exceedingly satisfied. The job these employees are subjected to is extremely time consuming and physical. Between introduction, inspection, reporting, paperwork, and (I can only imagine) several, yes several moments of questioning, an individual designed to handle this type of assignment would need to posess an immsense amount of patience, personality, empathy, and a strong will to REFRAIN from judgement. Judgement which can come so effortlessly when dealing with a specific population; that of poverty.    As a professional who is exposed to elements within someone elses home, I can only imagine the stress one must face entering that house and being expected to interact with people they know nothing about.     I can only say this, if I had to recommend Halco Energy to anyone, based upon my interaction with Mr. Jamie Kluk, I absolutely, without hesisitation would. I can only hope my interaction with him, and this review, will prepare this company in the future to set the bar even higher when looking at potentially new recruits! Because as any businessman/woman knows, THAT individual is the face of your company, and their every move is a precise delineation of you.

I am so happy to have a new hot water heater and new insulation in my attic. The crew did a fantastic job, very neat and clean. Such nice people, they answered all my questions. Jason was very helpful and kept in touch with me through the whole process, can’t say enough about how kind and patient he was. I highly recommend Halco to everyone!

I'd just like to say I appreciated the integrity displayed by Halco throughout this process. I initially had my worries that we were going to be sold on a lot of things we didn't need, but the first visit from George helped allay those fears. He pointed out aspects of the house we were not aware of as problems. Such as the bathroom fans venting into the attic, air circulation in the basement, issues with the dryer, and of course the leaking gas pipes. We were glad when the crew came out to fix these issues and more and also bring our insulation up to code. When George came out for the follow-up visit, he found that the gas pipes still had a minor leak, and I was impressed that Halco would double-check their work. Then the crew returned and they showed me how gas leaks are confirmed with that special fluid. Then I could actually see the bubble form and understand the process. That was useful for me to see. The crew then immediately redid the joint and we confirmed the seal was good. Then the guy gave me tips as he reignited the pilot on the water heater before they left. The ability to recognize, acknowledge and fix mistakes has become rare, and I am glad to see it exists at Halco.

To Whom It May Concern @Halco. Chris and James showed up right on schedule, after we talked on the phone, and got right to work. They sealed up the crawlspace in quick fashion, that looks very professional. I did not know about the vapor barrier, but James took a moment to explain that. It really looked nice when finished. I'll be proud to show it off when people come to visit. Next came the attic. The attic needed a little more prep work than originally anticipated, but the guys used some foam board, and spray foam, and got the job done. They laid down a nice thick layer of the cellulose very even about 21" deep anticipating it would settle down to 18". Everything was handled very professionally right down to sealing the hatches shut. I would hire them again in an instant. The most impressive praise came from two of my friends; one is a carpenter, and the other is a general contractor. I was a little out of my area of expertise so I asked them to talk to the guys, and look at the work. Both said no question that I had hired a good group of guys, and that everyone was very knowledgeable, and that they could not do a better job themselves. This from 2 guys with almost 80 years combined experience in home building, and remodeling. Sincerely, Hal R.

And your company.  May you all have a joyous new year 2020.
